But there's no problem with all of these things where people can help 
already. The wiki is working fine, the mailinglist is helping people, I 
never heard anyone complain about this.

None of this is fixing where people want the project to improve. People 
want to help with where the problems are, which is fixing builds so a 
release can be more timely.

Why are we avoiding this again and again ?
